John Wagner, Naval Aviator and Physician

Jason is truly a servant leader, always giving his utmost to motivate, inspire, and encourage. He comes alongside those who are struggling and brings out the very best in everyone around him, whether they're his subordinates, his peers, or his superiors. He simply cares about people, and his drive and desire is to see them do better, and be better. He’s genuinely exceptional, and easily one of the finest Naval Officers with whom I’ve had the honor of serving.

Mike Liu, Computer Engineer

Jason has been great in encouraging me to reflect on myself and understand that often we can see obstacles as barriers rather than learning opportunities.  Those obstacles may prevent us from what we wanted at a given time, but rather they direct the path towards the things we genuinely need.  When frustration came, he showed me to sublimate my systems towards a greater purpose.

Jason is a great leader and definitely lives the title of his book. He took the time to understand my circumstances. I never sensed judgement from him and always felt he really listened in order to help me. You know he is a true friend when he’ll call just to check up on you. Since he is not a self-promoter, I'm going to take this opportunity to promote his book. Jason, I am very proud of you my man, keep pursuing your vision of life.

Jason is someone who has taught me the strength in living with honor and integrity. He exemplifies what being a leader means, no matter the situation, and the importance of choosing the right path, no matter the difficulty. He is, through and through, a good man, consistently there for his family, friends, and those in need. His actions are those which are worth emulating.

M.H., NCIS agent, Breast Cancer Survivor

Jason inspires me to live my best life and not let any hardships or obstacles I face hinder me from fulfilling my dreams. Jason helps me to realize the importance of connecting with others and making a positive impact on everyone we encounter whether it’s your neighbor or a clerk at the store. He helps me view life through a different lens. We are not just walking through life merely existing...we are walking through life with a purpose. That purpose is unique to each individual but for me it entails friendships, gratefulness, positivity, and love.

Every human being gets the same number of hours and minutes in a given day, thus making TIME our most precious commodity. Jason has truly mastered time management.

Kao Saeteurn, Marine Corps Officer

Jason is a leader who does not tell you how it's done, he shows you how to do it.  I met Jason as my academic advisor when he was a professor at UC Berkeley.  At the time, he was already someone that all of his students emulated. Just when we thought he was at the pinnacle of his career, he decided to become a doctor.  This field grade officer humbled himself after 10+ years of service and he dove into an environment surrounded by brand new peers, many of which were younger than the students he just spent years mentoring and advising. Watching this man operate as a doctor and as a family man is truly inspirational. He started from scratch and has worked tirelessly to achieve what most hope to accomplish in five lifetimes, by the age of 40. With a copy of his book “Exceptional Every Day” I have a materialized reminder of what it takes to keep winning at life.

Jason is one of those rare souls that lives every word he professes. He is a consummate leader who motivates everyone around him and has been an exceedingly positive influence in my life. His approach to life is refreshing and genuine, drawing wisdom from everyone he meets and using it to inspire the very best of himself and those he leads. I've been proud to serve under him and next to him, and have truly learned from his example.

Greg Parker, USMC Retired Master Sergeant, former Drill Instructor, College Football Coach)

I worked with Jason at the University of California, Berkeley, Navy ROTC unit. I knew immediately from his first day that he would have a positive and lasting impact on the aspiring Navy and Marine Corps officers. What I did not know was that his impact would change the direction of my own life. He encouraged me during my bachelor’s degree to keep pushing and to move forward with attaining a master’s degree, and he kept encouraging me along the way. He’d remind me to always speak with positive energy, and those words always stuck with me, especially during tough times. Jason has always gone well beyond the call of duty in helping me be successful as a father, Marine, and football coach. I am grateful for you my friend. I’ll Never Forget.

I have had the privilege of knowing Jason as a great mentor, an exemplary father and most importantly a dear friend for the past 9 years. He has had a tremendous impact on my life since our years in medical school together. He is the very definition of leading by example. Through his actions, he has taught me how to be more disciplined in life. He has instilled in me the idea that challenging myself and stepping out of my comfort zone should be an integral part of striving to becoming a better person daily. It has been a very humbling experience to learn so much from him and I have no doubt that with time he will have a profound impact on the lives of many more people.

L. Savage, LVN

Dr. Valadao makes you feel like you have been his friend your entire life from the minute you meet him. He has this energy about him in which he is always thinking about the next step, creating a new concept, or inspiring others to be the best they can be. He gave me the confidence and motivation to provide a higher level of patient care and encouraged me to mentor my staff to make them the best they could be, when I lacked the confidence or the guidance to do it myself. I am able to receive weekly encouragement and uplifting stories by subscribing to his blog "The Process", where he shares his personal experiences, stories and motivational works that give you guidance and strength to keep going strong, and to reassure you that know that you are not alone because he is just an e-mail or phone call away. Thank you Dr. V for your friendship and guidance.

I am honored to say that my life has truly changed since I've been able to experience the great teachings and leadership that Jason offers. After 20 years into my career, I am finally taking it to the next level. I've been able to use a lot of the tools not only in my workplace, but also in my day-to-day life. After only a couple of coaching sessions with Jason my wife said, “I like this new Jon. Whatever you are doing with Jason, please keep doing it.” I am forever grateful and humbled to have the experience I've had.

Doug Witt, Engineer, Amgen Inc., former Nuclear Power Officer

While I was in college, Jason was one of the staff Lieutenants at my ROTC unit.  Without question, he was the biggest influence on what kind of Naval Officer I became.  He inspired me to be fiercely disciplined and to pursue a life that would make a difference.  He showed me what it meant to lead by example, serve the people who work for you, and stand for integrity, especially when all these things come at a high personal cost.  Ten years later, I continue to be grateful for the influence he had on my life.

Jason is an inspiration, role model, and incredible friend. He has shown me that decent people look for the good not the bad, even the most accomplished people have doubts and fears; asking for, or accepting help, is not a weakness; when adversity strikes, it is not the end of one's story, merely the beginning of a great new chapter; and he taught my son that modesty is far more impressive than arrogance.

I met Dr. Valadao at my first job as a medical assistant. Being that I am “slightly” older than Dr. V. and was new to the medical profession altogether, his youth and experiences in life intimidated me. I soon learned that my insecurities were my own. You see, Dr. V. is one of the most down to earth people that I know. He is humble and will share any knowledge he might have with you, and has! He’s SUPER motivating, driven and loves to help those who want to help themselves and yes, even the ones that don’t! The best thing that I can say about Dr. V. in my opinion is that he ensures you know you have worth no matter your status. I love it when I see “the Process” blog pop up in my email and I am always eager to apply the teachings to my life.

When Jason heard that my son John, a collegiate baseball player, was going away to a university out of state and away from family, he took time out of his hectic medical residency to write my son a letter of encouragement and he had never even met him. He then followed up with my son by writing a subsequent letter when things got tough. He always found a way to help others and he did so with kindness as the number one priority.
